A Nigerian man has accomplished his mission of becoming a citizen of another country with the aim of making his children dual citizens.
He made a pledge in March 2021 that he will ensure his unborn children are citizens of a nation other than Nigeria.
The man known as @_ThatCJ on Twitter had revealed that he would not mind settling for Madagascar so long as his children will be dual citizens.
“For what it’s worth i must give my children dual citizenship. Even if it’s Madagascar I can afford, they’re better off as penguins!” he tweeted.
Giving an update on November 2, 2023, he shared photo of his Canadian passport after becoming a citizen and quoted his old tweet.

CorrectNG recalls that Founder of Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel), Bishop David Oyedepo cautioned youths against the rush to leave Nigeria for greener pastures known as ‘japa’ syndrome.
He issued the warning while advising government to invest massively in citizens to restore the lost glory of Nigeria. Oyedepo said human capital development remains the most viable stock of any nation.
The pastor also urged government to take education funding seriously because it is the bedrock of sustainable national development. Oyedepo further said that an enabling environment for young Nigerians would reduce the number of citizens leaving the country.
He also warned about the dangers of being in a strange land, noting that many youths are stranded in foreign countries but cannot return because of shame.
The cleric added; “Parents need to reorientate their children. We all need to stay in Nigeria to rebuild. Everyone has a part to play in the recovery of his nation”.
